They did that to Da Capo too (the second ED came up in Ep 22)

Yeah, that part threw me too. It left me with that feeling that I missed an episode or two. This series does that a lot.

This might be little bit off topic but does anyone have this weird feeling that these episodes feels longer what they really are.. i mean it's that regular 24 min\ep but it just feels like itĘs 30 min or something.. never had this same feeling before with any other anime... (except with boring animes) but this serie is out that category..

or then itĘs just me..

it's probably because joker seems to be having all the fun while our heros seem to be having all the bad luck. It is just like 20th Century Boys were the bad guys always have something up their sleeve

I think jokers divide and conquer plans worked a little bit too perfectly, they should let the story flow instead of adding too many twists and end up ruining it

First Hello!
Second, Joker is probably just being his pompous ass self. He actually has reason to be so because the good guys havent put up any real offense and aside from Anita and Yomiko's recent actions have just been running. I also believe its psycological warfare on his part. He is acting like they have no chance to make them believe so.

Speaking of which, here in Japan, many people who saw that episode laughed at that scene as Joker, Yomiko and Anita looked like a friendly "mother, father, and daughter."

In the scene shot where Joker is looking at the portable GPS, it looks like Yomiko is the mother, Anita is the daughter and Joker is the dad who is lost looking at a map (much like in other places, men here also don't ask for directions when they are lost).

Unfortunately, I live by myself (I need a girlfriend)...

But, I often meet with my friends that I met through Comike and the like to discuss anime, and when we got into a discussion about that last R.O.D episode, many of us thought the same thing.

My house is a one-bedroom apartment.
My TV is a 45 inch plasma.

I don't know if this has been commented before but I love how the anime seems to be well chorerographed with the music. Events during battles occur on noticable beats and so forth. I didn't just notice this until recently.

Some examples I noticed while watching the last couple eps... times are approximate since there are a few groups doing these

Ep 21 - 17:21 (aone)
Ep 20 - 06:50 (a-s)

I noticed that too. And I quite like the musik that plays during the fights.
does anyone know what name that piece of music has and on which OST cd it is included, if on any?
I think it already played during the OVA

No idea Zem

Although, the fight scene in ep 20 (?) where Yomiko and Anita fight off the nasty people outside her house in the mountains - where Anita does the flips and spin kicks, i think that coulda been better animated, or at least, given a few more angles kicking the guys head in. I cant remember that far back now, only being amazed by how cool she is, but disapointed with it at the same time.

Im still trying to find the OST with the intro music though. Tis one of the best of any anime imo, i always turn it up load when i get a new episode
